In spite of the growth of new-media, telephone communication remains an important facet for any business because it connects callers with a human voice. Such a personal and immediate presence is crucial for maintaining your customer base and also for attracting prospective customers. There’s no better way than a phone call for a customer to get an effective response.
Telephone communication is also vital for you and your business team. Teleconferencing calls can bring you and your employees together wherever you or they are in the world at just a fraction of the cost of global travel. Attendees can call in using a toll free number and access code to enter the virtual conference room and interact with colleagues. This is a great way to keep everyone on the same page with your business and marketing strategies.
These days you can build an international presence in any country with virtual toll-free phone numbers, and Canada is no exception. Local or toll free Canada phone numbers allow you to appear local to Canadian clients, no matter where your company is based.
Doing Business in Canada
Many overseas companies choose to operate in Canada and it’s easy to see why. The economy is diverse and highly developed. As one of the world’s wealthiest nations, Canada has a high standard of living and quality of life. On par with most other developed countries, the Canadian economy is dominated by the service industry, which employs 75 percent of Canadians and accounts for 70 percent of GDP. The largest employer in this sector is retail, and it is concentrated in clusters of chain stores. There has recently been an increase in the number of Canadian big-box stores.
The second largest section of the service industry is business services, such as real estate, communications industries and financial services. This rapidly growing economic sector is based largely in Canada’s major urban areas such as Vancouver and Toronto. The third largest sector in Canada is the healthcare industry, which is largely under the influence of the Canadian government. The rapid growth of the healthcare industry has led to some problems finding and allocating funds.
Canada has the world’s third largest reserve of petroleum and is the fourth largest exporter of natural gas. Canada is unique among developed countries because of its value of primary sector industries such as oil and logging. The country has a relatively large manufacturing sector, which is based in Central Canada, the aircraft and auto industries are predominant. Because of its long coastline, Canada has the world’s eighth largest commercial seafood and fishing industry. The country is also a global leader in the high tech industry.
